When did Mattel lose the good head sculptor(s)?

I loved my Disney dolls when I was a young teen, but they eventually lost my interest. I was repacking junk a few months ago when I realized that the first issue John Smith is really quite nice.

Though the head is cartoonish, the understanding of facial anatomy is lightyears ahead of the 2009/2010 male heads. It looks fluid and lifelike from every angle.

The profile is gorgeous.

I've got a John Smith, too, and I LOVE his face sculpt. Excellent sculptor.
